FREE PARK AND RIDE FOR ALL PUBLIC ATTENDING THE EVENT:
A Park and Ride system has been introduced to help facilitate the flow of traffic in the vicinity and allow spectators ready access to the golf. There will be two off site car parks - one near Sunningdale, which will carry traffic from the West (M3 and M4) and one within Windsor Great Park Crown Estate east of the tournament venue close to the M25. Both parks will operate a free shuttle bus service to the event every five minutes with the journey time taking around 10 minutes.
Spectators using the Park and Ride shuttle buses will be dropped off at the new Welcome Tent adjacent to the 18th fairway of the East Course, giving access to the superb BMW PGA Championship Tented Village and incorporating a dedicated ticket collection point and a raft of other valuable spectator information on arrival.
The Park and Ride will operate from Wednesday to Sunday from 06.30hrs until 20.30hrs.
BMW OWNERS AND OFFICIAL BADGE HOLDERS:
BMW Owners and Official Badge Holders will be able to park on site as in previous years. There will be NO parking charge for BMW Owners and Official Badge Holders.
TRAVEL BY TRAIN:
An excellent alternative for spectators wishing to leave the car at home is to let the train take the strain. Virginia Water Station is only a five minute bus trip from the entrance to the Welcome Tent and a complimentary shuttle service will run on a continuous loop to and from the event throughout each day from Wednesday. This service will run from 07.00hrs – 20.00hrs.
Virginia Water Station can be accessed easily from London Waterloo, Clapham Junction, Reading, Woking, Weybridge and many other stations. For more details on services and timings please visit www.thetrainline.com
